CSX Expected to Re-Align Huntington Division

CSX may announce on Tuesday that it plans to realign its Huntington Division in the wake of falling coal traffic, Trains magazine reported on Monday.

The division covers CSX routes from southern Tennessee to central Ohio and reaches to the coast of Virginia.

The entire length of the former Chesapeake & Ohio as well as all of the former Clinchfield are part of the Huntington Division. Included in that territory are the railroad’s coal-heavy branches in Kentucky and West Virginia.

Trains said it has learned that the realignment might affect jobs in management, train dispatching and clerk positions.

The division employs more than 100, including division managers, a regional vice president, directors and supervisors of train operations, more than 65 train dispatchers, and 20 yardmasters.

As it is currently constituted, the division is divided into east and west regions that have 45 subdivisions.
